ChemStewards® Overview

ChemStewards® is an environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) management program designed to help your facility optimize its performance, save money and enhance its role as a good corporate citizen in your community. The program was established in 2005 to meet the unique needs of the specialty chemical industry. As a mandatory requirement for SOCMA members engaged in the manufacturing or handling of synthetic and organic chemicals, ChemStewards helps participants reach for superior EHS&S performance.
